Product Guides provide loan-level product-specific eligibility and qualification requirements. Most commonly presented in matrix or tabular format, they are the product information the majority of users are accustomed to reading. This is also the information that experiences the greatest rate of change with updates often occurring daily. We recommend that a product guide focus upon what distinguishes that product from standard requirements rather than reciting each eligibility element repeatedly across multiple products. The scope of such a project will vary with the number of products offered, the depth of information to be presented, and the format in which the information is presented. Overlay or presenting the variances to established guidelines is simplest. The more data conveyed the larger the project scope. Format also impacts budget. While common and desired for many reasons, table or matrices require more development time than narrative formats.
This option focuses on loan analysis and related underwriting requirements, including borrower, transaction, and property eligibility, and appraisal requirements. Because product or program guides are integral to the underwriting function, they are included in the underwriting guide table of contents, with the expectation that these guides exist and are either referenced (linked) or included directly within the guide. The approach selected will impact the development budget, with the referenced product guides being the least time intensive. Development of product or program guides is not included within underwriting guide development, but may be undertaken as an additional project. The underwriting guide table of contents also represents options for content related to the underwriting of FHA, VA, USDA, and reverse (HECM) mortgages. While any and/or all of this content may be included within the underwriting guide under development, each of these will increase the budget incrementally, and are not included within the minimum project time noted above.Download Underwriting Guide Sample
A seller guide is a large document or collection of content, which includes all information related to originating or selling loans (doing business) with your organization. Similar titles may include wholesale, broker, correspondent, or TPO guide. Every organization with a wholesale channel generally has such a guide. They vary in scope from the comprehensive guides published by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to very minimalistic guides.
A Seller Guide may contain:
- Seller’s eligibility and performance criteria
- Registration, pricing and delivery requirements
- Appraisal and property standards
- Representations and warranties
- Contractual requirements or related references
- Regulatory compliance requirements
- Product guides

Servicing guides are essential and required parts of any servicing operation. The CFPB and other regulators now audit for regulatory compliance as well as consumer complaints and UDAAP. A comprehensive servicing guide will help your operation run more smoothly and serve to document policy and process for auditors. Servicing guides are complex; less defined by the agencies and more unique to each servicer. As such, existing policy and process must be incorporated into the guide as part of the development process. The base guide includes most all information related to servicing or administering conventional loans for your organization or on behalf of an agency or investor. Additional content is available to address servicing of loans for FHA, VA, USDA and Ginnie Mae.
A Seller Guide may contain:
- Fiduciary responsibilities
- Custodial and remittance responsibilities
- Transfer requirements
- Payment processing
- Customer service
- Delinquency management and default prevention
- Foreclosures, conveyances and claims, acquired properties
